Default Reverse Beep Noise

A friend of mine said he was able to disconnect the beeping noise when the car goes into reverse. Has anybody else been able to do this? and how?

He said he did it himself. I have a 2006 Package 8.
Thanks!

You know, that beep really bugged me when I first got the car. But after a year, I got used to it, and occasionally, appreciated it.

Sometimes, I sing along with the beeping. Try Verdi's Anvil Chorus, it's fun.

The beep has saved me a dent or two. I recommend keeping it.

I must admit it is annoying, but sometimes I gear shift too fast and it doesn't take (I did'nt pay much attention or check the screen often when I first started driving.. new driver, but I learned that lesson fast) and would of almost hit a car a few times had it not been beeping to tell me I was in reverse and not in drive..

I'm still in the habit of pressing down on the lever to get into any gear, so I've found the beeps helpful, too. Maybe eventually I won't need it, but for now I'm keeping it.

I, on occasion find myself doing that too.

It would have been nicer if the beeps were in the rear on the outside. We'd probably hear it but not be annoying, and those in the path of our travels would hear it too.

You have to ask yourself if you have needed the warning in any previous car you have driven for the past twenty years?
Or a rear view camera for that matter!

I guess. But I didn't "need" the hybrid drive, the cd player, auto dimming mirror, power windows, digital display, rear defog, rear wiper, power locks, or bluetooth. Or the airbags, for that matter. My grandpa's 1962 Fairlane didn't "need" seatbelts, either. My dad had a 1928 Model A that didn't "need" power windshield wipers. But all of those things are kinda nice to have. Some are, granted, more useful than others. But why not? If it's there, and we like it, good for us! If we don't like it and can undo it, good for us some more.

Anyone else ever twiddle the 'brightness' knob on the TV, and end up disappointed that the programs were still dumb? Every now and then, I suspect someone has misadjusted the contrast in here, too. But I wouldn't trade most of us. :*
